Spring Planting

Although this project officially started yesterday, completing it today was really the best part.  I finally got my tomatoes planted... along with some basil, jalapeños and cilantro.  (You know... the best friends of the tomato.)  We even managed to get some decorative flowers in pots in both the front and back yard.  It's nice to add a little color around here. I do not have a green thumb... but I can grow tomatoes.  At least I could grow them when we lived on the dairy.  Last year (in town, in containers) did not work out so well for me.  This year's crop has to be in containers too, but they are strategically placed in the sunniest part of the back yard.  I'm hoping that makes a difference.  I absolutely LOVE tomatoes.  The more the merrier.  This year I planted 3 varieties: 2 Early Girl, 1 Beefsteak and 1 Grape.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

So now I have to be patient.  In the wise words of Margaret Thatcher,  "I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end."
